People recently released from prison not only need to find a job, but they also need to remain employed in order, to establish stability and ideally to lay the foundation for long term advancement and wage growth. However, the jobs they often find are temporary or transitional.
Employment plays a crucial role in helping ex-prisoners avoid criminal behavior and re-incarceration. Thus, a primary goal of Bridge Prison Ministry is to prepare ex-prisoners for success in the labor market and increase their employment opportunities.
Securing and Maintaining Gainful Employment (SAMGE) is a 10-week course geared toward job success for the ex- prisoner.
